New International Students
Due to COVID-19 all arriving international students must ensure they are eligible to travel and are required to register with the University of Guelph's Mandatory Quarantine Program.
These handbooks includes a lot of important information, including checklists for your depature.
- Fall Admission: In June we will send you an email to welcome you to the University. This email will highlight some important programs within our office that you should be aware of, tips on how to get prepared for coming to Canada, how to connect with other students, and a Pre-Arrival Handbook.
- Winter Admission: The information noted above will be sent to you in December.
Check your University of Guelph email address (@uoguelph.ca) regularly. After the initial welcome email, all communication from our office will be sent to your university email address. It is important to check this often to avoid missing out on important information and engagement opportunities at the university.
We encourage you to get in touch with us by emailing us at email@example.com after you have accepted your offer of admission and as you prepare to come to Guelph. We want to get to know you and make the process as seamless as it can be. Email us, even if it is just to introduce yourself.
If you are an exchange student, you will receive all your information from Education Abroad Advisors at the Centre for International Programs. Please contact the Centre for International Programs if you have any questions (firstname.lastname@example.org).
